Hosting weddings is just one of Nicola's businesses. Another is a cosmetic surgery clinic offering skin tightening and laser liposuction. A side benefit is treatment on the house. Nicola lifts up her shirt to reveal a perfectly flat, bronzed tummy. Ten years ago, the Trathens were in much the same position as the Gunns.
They had three boys and wanted a girl. Then Nicola got pregnant again. At 27 weeks she had a private scan to find out the sex of the child. But I didn't do the pink nursery thing. I did it all in mint and lemon, just in case.
Which was just as well: the fourth baby turned out to be a boy. I thought, 'It was you I loved for the last nine months, not a little girl called Zara!
So Zara became Adam. And Michael had a vasectomy. I thought, 'I'm never going to have that. Then came a moment of revelation: "It was April and Adam was two months old. I was sitting there feeding him, the TV was on, and I caught the tail end of this documentary. And it was like a bolt — oh my gosh! Although Michael had had a vasectomy, they were able to extract his sperm, and Nicola went for the initial treatment at the Rainsbury Clinic in London.
Seven weeks later, Nicola found out she was pregnant with twin girls. When the twins were born, she called them Georgia and Danielle. They are, says Nicola, "completely different from the boys in every respect. The boys are rough and running around with guns. The girls are usually attached to my side, drawing, doing make-up, nail varnish, watching princess movies and just chatting constantly. I can hear Danielle. Out in the hallway are two pretty six-year-old girls in pink shifts.
The twins wriggle and clamber and tumble around the room. They are lovely, lively girls. One is academic, the other sporty. Nicola gestures to the two little heads.
The Gunns and Trathens could never have their sex selection treatment in this country. The Chinese census showed there were boys under the age of five to every girls. A similar trend is reported in India, which also has a deep-seated cultural preference for boys.
So one fear was that, with sex selection, the population of Britain would become unbalanced. But the HFEA quickly concluded this was most unlikely. Although "a disproportionately high" percentage of couples actively seeking sex selection were non-Europeans preferring boys, overall, families seemed to want both sexes.
Other reports suggest a mild preference among Caucasians for girls. Nicola Trathen says she has been contacted by more than women seeking her advice, and most have wanted a girl. However, the HFEA did encounter another stumbling block: "a general moral consensus" against sex selection.
And then the real clincher: wasn't sex selection for the benefit of the parents, rather than of the child? The report noted that, among some respondents, "The view was that it is one thing to wish to have a child of one sex rather than the other and another thing to take steps to bring it about, since positive intervention in this area changes one's relationship to the outcome, replacing hopes with expectations… Respect for the future child's value as an individual precludes the exercise of control by parents over the kind of child it is to be, including over its sex.
The HFEA concluded that the benefits of sex selection were "at best debatable and certainly not great enough to sustain a policy to which the great majority of the public are strongly opposed".
